This is pretty much the geek wedding to end all geek weddings. Saddened by the lack of lightsabers though.

Things I Bought at Tampa Bay Comic Con

I had fun bragging and showing off cool stuff I bought last month at MegaCon, so I’ve decided to post all my purchases from this weekend’s Tampa Bay Comic Con for all to see. I’m pretty lucky to live in Florida where a con literally happens twice a month, so expect more bragging posts in the future. Like last time, I’ll explain how much I spent on the item, how much they run for, and if I saved any cash buying the items at a convention rather than the Internet or Amazon.

Top photo, Volumes 1-3 of Tank Girl: This was a really neat find. Those of you who are really into Gorillaz should already know what this is about. Tank Girl is a comic book series started by Jaime Hewlett (illustrator and co-creator of the Gorillaz) and Alan Martin (writer), revolving around an outlaw girl who drives a tank (obviously) and dates a mutant kangaroo. Sick stuff, great art, and for the mature. The second and third trades run at roughly $10 new on Amazon, while the first trade is around $30 new on Amazon. I got each of these trades for a lousy $2 each. I spent $6 in total for these in almost near mint condition! They were even bagged and boarded.

Second and third rows of photos, Iron Man 1963 Fine Pewter Original Statue: I honestly don’t understand how I got this little pewter statue for so fucking cheap, but I paid $5 for it from some guy with a table of just over nine different busts. The picture’s a little blurry due to my camera lens not being able to focus on the background comic of the bust, but it’s the issue of Tales of Suspense which Iron Man originated from as the backdrop. This tiny statue is under seven inches, came with a certificate of authenticity, and is running for $75 new on Amazon, with sellers asking for $50. Maybe the dude I bought it from had it for a while and it’s brought him bad luck or something, but I’m glad I picked this little guy up.

Forth row photo, Heavy 3PO: The Coleman Chronicles of Scud the Disposable Assassin: I read about this comic book last month and bought it this weekend because of that reason. I have no fucking recollection of why I was actually looking into this comic book in the first place, but this trade was only $4. The writer, Rob Schrab, apparently also directed all seasons of The Sarah Silverman Program, as well as directing a couple of episodes of Parks and Recreation, Children’s Hospital, and Community. According to Wikipedia: “The protagonist of the series is Scud, an average Heart Breaker Series 1373 model assassin. On his first mission, he is sent to kill Jeff, a rampaging female mutant with mousetraps for hands, an electrical plug for a head, and a squid for a belt.” This is probably why I was subliminally interested in the series in the first place…

Fifth row, comic books: I mean, no shit, right? I went to MegaCon this year to find comic books and I didn’t get anything I was really hoping to grab. At a small comic convention in Tampa though, I managed to grab various issues of Sandman, Swamp Thing, Lone Wolf and Cub, Human Target, Hellblazer, and some comic book by Alan Moore called Skizz. I grabbed over 50 issues of these various titles, with at least 20 of them being Swamp Thing issues from Vertigo, and another 20 being Sandman issues. I spent less than $50. I don’t really have to explain how good of a deal this is — the beautiful cover art of Sandman and Swamp Thing alone are worth $3 an issue, in my opinion.  I’m framing some of these this week and throwing them up on my wall.

So yeah, add a price of $15 admission to the actual convention and I think I spent around $90 tops for one day at the con. Not bad with what I grabbed.

Don Cheadle Almost Looks As Cool As Terrence Howard In This New Iron Man 3 Poster
Don Cheadle looks pretty bad-ass rocking the Iron Patriot armor, but (and I know I’ll catch some hate for this) I’m eternally grumpy about Terrence Howard no longer being in this series, no matter what Jon Favreau may or may not have thought of his performance in the first one.
Anyway, the new flick looks awesome yaddayadda, look at the goddamn poster, I hope Gwyneth Paltrow gets naked, etc. Oh, and I hope to God Marc Ruffalo is in this movie because I just want him and Tony to do science and go on adventures and be BFFs forever.
